Safeguarding Week 21 - 25 June 2021

We are pleased to confirm that a virtual, online conference will take place between 21-25 June to mark Safeguarding Week 2021.


Partners from Safeguarding Adults Boards, Children’s Safeguarding Partnerships, Community Safety Partnerships across at North Yorkshire, the City of York and East Riding have come together to develop an extensive programme of learning events, seminars and interactive sessions. The programme of events will be delivered virtually throughout the week providing ease of access for all attendees.


Developed for both professional and public audiences, the conference offers a packed schedule of sessions which will be delivered by inspirational and motivational speakers, all of whom are experts in their field. The professional sessions will cover key safeguarding areas and have been designed to stimulate discussion, share best practice, spark innovation and support continuing professional development.


Public-facing sessions will raise awareness of key issues and provide insight into how every member of the public can play a key in safeguarding themselves, their families and the wider community – reinforcing the key message of the week that ‘Safeguarding is everybody’s business’.
